Pros: Great Build quality and shielding, Sound has a nice balance reflecting source SQ signature accurately.

Cons: What makes the build quality great at same time makes it to stiff to be truly flexible at times.

QED Reference USB cable review   A-Micro B connection   Available lengths: 0.3, 0.6, 1.0, 2.0 & 3.0M.   Length tested: 0.3M       For the last year now I have owned a Chord Hugo and have been plodding along happy listening to my music with the stock cable supplied as the Hugo was a revelation to start with out of the box in terms of redefining my head-fi set up but in that year have been to a couple of Head-fi gigs one been the first London Canjam and heard how much difference a USB cable had to offer in the chain and been a 2 channel audio speaker set up kind of guy have had plenty of experience with different cables in my speaker system down...

Cons: Ideally could do with bigger coax and 3.5 jack ports on connection side and does not reset volume after each use.
